‘The Landlord's Friend’ – Hamilton Fraser’s Property Podcast

Landlords are facing increasing legislation, regulation and uncertainty. With many feeling that they are being unfairly scapegoated and discriminated against, this month’s podcast, ‘The Landlord’s Friend’, aims to redress the balance.

This month, Eddie and Paul are joined by property market analysist, commentator and co-author of ‘The Landlord’s Friend’, Kate Faulkner.

In what is at present often a confusing industry, Eddie, Paul and Kate aim to dispel some of the myths surrounding the private rented sector and provide steadfast advice for landlords, while also focusing on the future of landlording.

After the successful release of ‘The Landlord’s Friend’ book in 2015, Kate and Paul have now released an updated edition for 2019, focused on how landlords can make the best out of the ever changing sector, while also ensuring that they remain compliant.

In this podcast, Eddie, Paul and Kate discuss the launch of ‘The Landlord’s Friend’ book, including their motivations behind releasing a new edition and the process involved, as well as exploring the importance of being a business savvy landlord, why it is vital to understand your tenants and the intricacies of landlord regulation and legislation.

In addition, they cover a range of topics including government policy, how buy to let has evolved, increasing market demands, and whether landlords get a bad rap in the industry.

With an extensive knowledge of the property industry, Kate is relied upon as a key source of information for sector news channels. She has made a number media appearances, including on the BBC, the one show, Radio 5 Live, the Daily mail, ITV, and LBC Property Hour.
